Las Brisas was the final course on our short three day trip and had recently undergone a significant redesign under Kyle Phillips. The course set on a narrow piece of land uses the undulations and elevations really well. From the tee Las Brisas is not overly daunting and the new bunkering stands out with its white sand framing the fairways. I thoroughly enjoyed the challenge around the greens with run off areas, bunkers and rough giving the player a number of short game options. There are some great holes on Las Brisas from the 8th a par 5 with a steep barranca running down the right followed by water protecting the narrow green...this is a cracking risk and reward hole. The 11th a long par 3 with its small green again protected by water is another brilliant hole. The front 9 maybe the best in the area with its undulation changes and variety of holes and although the back 9 is good it does not quite reach the heights of the front side. All in all Las Brisas is a fine course in excellent condition which provides a fun test for players of all abilities.
